Hurdling a Defender 101
It’s been quite a while since we’ve hit you with some freak athleticism here on LBS, but this video almost makes it worth the wait. Jumping over a defender can be dangerous and is usually not something that’s encouraged by a head coach, but when you can jump this high I say go for it. Scope this video of Kentucky recruit Ashley Lowery hurdling a defender, courtesy of Sports Crackle Pop:
Lowery looks like Nate Robinson dunking over Dwight Howard. The d-back was pretty much standing completely upright. Maybe Calipari should consider getting in on the recruitment of this guy.
